2010 Craggy Range Sophia Bordeaux Style Blend
The best parcels of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot Bordeaux varietals are selected from the Gimblett Gravels vineyard and blended to make the richly layered and precisely constructed ‘Sophia’. The grapes are blended to produce a wine that is a unique canvas of its place.
‘Sophia’, meaning ‘wisdom’ in greek mythology, pays tribute to the goddess of knowledge and experience, information and understanding – a philosophy adopted by our winemakers and viticulturists when creating this wine.
“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Sophia has expressive ripe blackcurrant, black plum and black cherry notes over violets, cedar, baking spices and chocolate. Medium bodied, it has taut, youthful fruit laced with oak in the mouth supported by medium to firm fine grained tannins and lively acid.
“The finish is long. It should drink best 2014 to 2022+.” — Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
